Default What fuel for a losi 8 t rtr?

Well I'm getting a losi 8 t rtr as soon as the fedex man arives today. What fuel would ya'll recommend? I have some traxxas 20% and some byrons 30%? Anything I need to know about this truggy before I tear out with it? Btw.... it comes with a 454 losi engine. Thanks.

either of those you have will work, the traxxas 20% will be a little easier to tune with and the byron 30% will be better performance.

If i had that setup here i would break it in with the traxxas 20 (higher oil content)then switch to byron 30 to race it

Should run and break the motor in with the fuel you plan on running on a constant basis. You might want to check out the Tunning and Break in bible that is on this sight very helpful for all ur tunning and break in It does work and is very easy to follow and understand.

Default 20

Brake it in easy with the 20 percent. I don't really see the need for higher than 25. I would use the 20 percent to break it in and then get 25 byrons to race with..IMO
